Is it a sign of brick and mortar or is it the lightweight solution – expanded polystyrene?
Signs of all sorts can be deceiving. EPS – the Extraordinary Product Solution – is widely used for monumental signs of all shapes, sizes and textures. The ease of handling and installing of this material is just part of its curb appeal. Costly stone and brick signs require multiple trades, time, and coordination. EPS signs, on the other hand, are more cost efficient and can be installed in just a few hours with little labor.
We followed the journey of our sign as it was created by Peachtree City Foamcraft in Schnecksville, PA. The process starts with EPS blocks, 36″ x 48″ x 96″. The design is then entered into the CAD system and the contour machine goes to work.
The ease of installation is also a bonus. After viewing the instructional installation video provided by Peachtree City Foamcraft, the landscape crew from Western Lehigh Landscaping went to work. Requiring very few additional materials, installation was uncomplicated, and easy to install.
Expanded polystyrene signs and objects manufactured by Peachtree City Foamcraft are finished with a Poly-Armor™ coat and topped with a 100% acrylic finish that withstands the “hammer test” and severe weather. It will not crack, rot, peel or delaminate. Also unlike traditional stone and mortar, the design possibilities for EPS are endless.
So next time you are driving down the street and you see a sign, is it what it appears to be or is it in fact EPS, the Extraordinary Product Solution?
